Right...I may or may not have too much time on my hands but I thought a creative blog might include emotions I have noted throughout the week (as per those ridiculous facebook one-liners that let the whole world know when you're going to the loo). Plus not enough people are commenting...I need to shake things up a bit don't I?
Facebook Status #1- Sarah's struggling to move around re: blisters
Explanation- I had an awesome weekend in Ottawa c/o Commonwealth Game Canada's International Development through Sport programme. Dear Uncle Em picked me up from the airport & I was happy to see my aunt, cousins & their kids after a year hiatus. I always love passing through Ottawa & glimpsing into the hustle & bustle of my family's schedules out there. But back to the blisters...my friend Simone took me on a 'walking tour' of Ottawa on Sunday. We took a couple wrong turns but finally ended up in little Italy (it was great- their team had tied their game that morning- World Cup of course). Terribly painful couple of days post-walking; but worth it nonetheless!
Facebook Status #2- I want to go shopping!
Explanation- Woot- I start a new job on Monday (& a real one...not painting fences)*giggling*...I think I deserve a new pair of heels or something to psyche myself up for day 1, no?
Facebook Status #3- Gooooooo Ghana!!
Explanation- Ghana may be the only African team moving to the next round (how I wish Cote d'Ivoire would make the cut too); how sweet it would be to knock out the USA...fingers crossed for Ghana!
Facebook Status #4- What is that smell?
Explanation- After wiping the dog sh#@ from my shoe, realizing that I forgot to put on deodrant before spending 5 hours in the sun painting a fence, hearing the next-door neighbour (who had not seen me) let a deafening fart escape... a gorgeous manly freshly-washed scent drifted to my then delighted nostrils. Still don't know where it came from but it certainly wasn't me.
FB #5- Sarah's enjoying time with her Gran
Explanation- Gran'll be in house for the whole week- the weekend will be busy as Uncle Wal's coming up for a visit. It feels like summer*smile*
